Abstract

We present a novel play interface called Blow Painting that enables people to create leaf collage paintings on a digital canvas by blowing at a toy windmill. The toy windmill detects the blowing action and direction with its embedded microphone and rotation sensor. Four kinds of leaf "stencils" (Red Maple, Sugar Maple, Hickory and White Oak) are embedded in the transparent RFID sheets to be placed under the windmill for the play interaction. We describe the motivation, system components, an informal pilot test, and discuss directions for future work.
